     Scott attended Platte Valley School and graduated from North Platte High in 1966. He served in the US Army and Reserves from 1967-1973. He was also a member of the Nebraska National Guard.
     He married Carol A. Branting on Jan. 9, 1971 in North Platte, where they lived most of their lives. Scott worked for the Union Pacific Railroad for over 20 years.
     He enjoyed spending time with his kids, playing horseshoes, and being ornery. Scott was well known for his love of jokes and humorous stories.
